Congratulations to Mia Gaier, a Year 12 student last year, who received a New Zealand Scholarship in English, one of 3 percent of students across the country that reached the high standard. New Zealand Scholarship provides recognition and monetary reward to top students across each subject. Students who receive these awards are expected to demonstrate high-level critical thinking, abstraction, and generalisation, and to integrate, synthesise and apply knowledge, skills, understanding, and ideas to complex situations.
